Minimize The Possibilities of Boiler/Burner Explosions

Do Your Safety Devices Really Work?

Safety devices on boilers are a serious matter. Not only can equipment be damaged, operations shutdown for extended periods, but also loss of life can occur. During some of our retrofits and troubleshooting experiences, we have found safety devices jumpered out, set at the wrong values, or completely non-functional. Some of these devices have been that way for years without the customer's knowing. Customers have been shocked to learn that these devices were found to be inoperative.

During our system evaluation:
  1. We check the safety device settings/parameters.
  2. We check the process connections for obstructions.
  3. We verify the operation of the complete flame safety/burner management "loop".
  4. We provide documentation showing the status of each device.
